  • ermm.. my 1st trip to bali, so not sure whether they going to bring me there, but
    going to Nusa Penida/Lembongan/Crystal Bay for sure.

    I dont really suggest Blue Corner if its ur 1st trip to Bali...
    Blue corner is just not really for "beginners"..
    Safety comes 1st, bro!

  • If you are diving Lembongan and N. Penida, always bring a SMB and whistle. Leave no chances. Have you seen, the boat captain/crew always pray and drop the flower dish into the water whenever we go to N. Penida...

    when even air bubbles r sucked down.. Inflating ur bcd will get u dragged down even faster due to increased drag!  :D

    Just stick close to reef and be ready to hang on to reef. :-\
    So they call it a 'FACT' coz someone made some statements on a 'FACT SHEET'? hummm...

    Depending on the current, it can be useless or dangerous. When you feel like you continuously  pushed down, you will probably keep inflating air which can be dangerous once you are out of it. Best is to keep close to the reef.

    For some reason if you got caught and the reef is beyond your reach, try to swim out of it.

  • In a down current, hug the reef and try and 'crawl' upwards. inflating the BC is a big no no. If caught in one already, no use fighting just let it take you off the reef and out into the blue where the current usually dies down. Start you ascent there and launch an SMB ASAP?

  • Read from forum, those safety features would be

    Smb
    Whistle
    CD, mirror
    Knive
    Water jus in case you got lost..

    And stay close to buddy!
    Diving is like passion, deep and sensational, and sometimes dangerous.

    Taking a break from diving. Boohoo~
